What do a warehouse, boxing ring, hula hoops, and a double decker bus have in common? Answer, an unforgettable night at the Land8 Happy Hour: PHX-Style!
In the heart of Phoenix's warehouse district, just a half mile from downtown, a gem of a space called The Duce welcomed over 250 landscape architects with 5 hours of fun, food, drinks, networking, and all the dancing they could handle. The evening was epic and the energy was...HOT. (The 80 degrees weather that night didn't hurt the mood either.)
The evening started off on a mellow note with some indy tunes that lead us to a toast to Adam Regn Arvidson's for the launch of his new book, Greening the Landscape: Strategies for Environmentally Sound Practice. From there, the energy quickly picked up and the dance floor remained full for the remainder of the evening. People continued to flow in throughout the evening until both dance floor and patio were full.
It was tough to leave such an energy-packed event. DJ Lu-is played not one but two encore songs after the crowd wouldn't let him quit. The party continued as people piled onto the double-decker bus for the half mile trip back to the hotels.
I want to give a huge THANKS to Brooke and Lara for helping coordinate the event details and to all of YOU for coming out to celebrate our wonderful profession. Mad props to DJ Lu-is and the staff at The Duce for keeping the party going, and to our sponsors for helping make it all (financially) possible.
Here's to next time!
